“This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.”
King James Version (KJV)
3:15 This wisdom - Which is consistent with such zeal. Is earthly - Not heavenly; not from the Father of Lights. Animal - Not spiritual; not from the Spirit of God. Devilish - Not the gift of Christ, but such as Satan breathes into the soul.
Jas 3:15 This wisdom descendeth not from above. Wisdom (not real wisdom, but false) which gives rise to envy and strife is not from heaven. But [is] earthly, sensual, devilish. It is of the passions, of the devil, not of God.
